SAY GOODBYE TO PROCESSED MEAT
New studies show that the link between these deadly delicious meats and cancer are growing more certain. Hotdogs, packaged turkey, ham, sausage, and canned meat are either smoked, cured, or go through a process that enhances their flavor and prolongs shelf life, and it’s these preservation techniques that cause cancer. Carcinogens form when meat is fried, roasted, or grilled at high temps, too. A new report by the National Cancer Institute found that eating 50 g of processed meat per day (think either six slices of bacon, one hotdog, or two slices of ham) already increases your risk of cancer by 18 percent. You can do this: Either quit cold turkey (couldn’t resist) or limit intake to one meal on weekends.
